Extended Deadline: Apply for MoA's Interdisciplinary Autumn School until 19 August
Against a background of ecologies in crisis, MoA's interdisciplinary Autumn School »Frictioned Functionality: Un/Designing Un/Sustainable Matter« invites Post-Docs, PhDs and MA students from the humanities, natural sciences and design to work through the conflicted entanglement of materiality, design and un/sustainability, using frictioned functionality as the guiding principle. In the context of this Autumn School, we want to understand frictioned functionality as a working concept to reopen other narrative and performative spaces of imagination in and beyond unruly times.

Application are accepted until August 19th, 2022, find all application details here.

SALSA "Make and Measure" 2022: Communicating Make and Measure

How do we communicate what we know? What impact do our data have on society? How can transfer of knowledge happen in the framework of 'open science'? What is collaboration, and who owns ideas? What is novelty? Our ongoing discussion of these and other questions will be deepened by members, guests, and friends of SALSA at this year’s Make and Measure. The discussion will form the framework for three days of exchange about your research in the Analytical Sciences and social interaction.

Communicating Make and Measure will take place in a hybrid format: in presence, live at HU in Berlin-Adlershof, and online. The event will start on Thursday, September 15th and end on Saturday, September 17th, 2022.

The following guests have confirmed their participation in the discussion:

Lothar Wieler (Robert Koch Institute Berlin)
Jessica Wade (Imperial College London)
Tijana Prodanović (University of Belgrade)
Erik Krogh (Vancouver Island University)
Hans Hennig von Grünberg (University of Potsdam)
Gunda Köllensperger (University of Vienna)

Sodium (Na) Battery Symposium SBS-3 - Berlin 2022

Sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) based on abundant elements are an attractive alternative to lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries. Research on SIBs gained a lot of momentum in the last years and is fueled by press releases of several companies around the world on using the technology for stationary energy storage and electric mobility.

After events in Jena (SBS-1, 2018) and Dresden (SBS-2, 2021) the third symposium will take place in Berlin (SBS-3). The scientific symposium will focus on recent trends and discoveries on
- Electrodes and electrolytes for sodium-ion batteries
- Solid electrolytes / solid-state batteries
- Intermediate and high temperature Na batteries

Confirmd speakers inluce: Stefano Passerini (Helmholtz-Institut Ulm), Jürgen Janek (JLU Giessen), Magdalena Titirici (Imperial College London), Wolfgang Zeier (WWU Münster), Franziska Klein (Fraunhofer ICT), Christian Masquelier (LRCS Amiens), Reza Younesi (Uppsala University), Montserrat Galceran (CIC Energigune), Meike Heinz (EMPA), Matthias Schulz (Fraunhofer IKTS), Yongsheng Hu (IOP, HiNa battery), Florian Doetz (BASF New Business), Payam Kaghazchi (FZJ Jülich), Patrik Johansson (Chalmers University), Rezan Demir-Cakan (Gebze Technical University), Shinichi Komaba (Tokyo University of Science), Ivana Hasa (University of Warwick), Teófilo Rojo (University of Basque Country), Matteo Bianchini(University of Bayreuth), Mathieu Morcrette (LRCS Amiens / Tiamat)

Future WiNS: New Energies for a Sustainable World

“Future WiNS” as an interdisciplinary event brings together a community of natural scientists from all fundamental and applied research fields – from mathematics and computer science to geography and engineering – to discuss current challenges in energy research and viable strategies for sustainable solutions. During a two-day workshop, we aim to bring to Berlin established researchers and young talents from national and international academic and extra-academic institutions giving keynote presentations in the respective areas. An evening poster session will give the opportunity to all participants, including students, to share their results and ideas in an informal and barrier-free context. In this spirit, we plan a social event open to all participants where topics related to career development and opportunities, professional and personal empowerment, and networking are discussed in a friendly and cheerful atmosphere.

The conference is open to participants of all genders, background, and level of career and there will be no fee.

Depending on the budget, we plan to offer travel grants to participants applying for them.
